Thanks to the Mountain Astrologer Magazine we have an excellent article on transits to America's natal chart and an upcoming, difficult development in our nation's progressions which astrologer Robert Blaschke says indicates Upheaval and Rebellion on the Horizon.
It's US Secondary Progressed Sun 7Pisces00 which will square US Sec Uranus 7Gem00 in October 2011. Environmental factors are unpredictable during such times for outside forces interfere with daily lives - forces such as weather events, war, and reactionary protests.
And to complicate things such as getting at the truth, tr Neptune continues its haze over all proceedings (Neptune to US n Moon) causing our dissatisfaction to grow.
As you know, transiting Uranus, the rebel, is knocking at America's door - the IC of the US natal chart 00Ari43. Jupiter joins in the disruptive 'fun' on June 8, 2010 when Jupiter and Uranus meet there at our door and pause a moment before entering the 4th house of Domestic Scene. In Mundane Astrology, 4th house also signifies we-the-people who shall be stirred up like hornet's nests on the buzz.
Ideals and ideologies will be entwined in the melee with Jupiter, the Hierophant, Guru, Priest, and Rich Man involved (and Jupiter = the Republican Party, Saturn = the Dems. The Jupiter/Saturn opposition undergirds much of our societal ills now with their cycle beginning on May 28, 2000; their opposition is the fulfillment of that Taurean cycle which started with '23Taurus' = "A Jewelry Shop Filled with the Most Magnificent Gems.")
Perhaps the perfection in Oct 2011 of the Secondary SQ of our Sun/Uranus will act as a timer of a crescendo of sorts, as unprincipled behavior and rule-breaking will be exhibited (yes, more than heretofore) and attitudes about authority will be re-examined or even thrown overboard. Mr. Obama's critics and opponents will likely feel emboldened against him.
Yes, Sun = the leader in national charts and in this case, I think perhaps Uranus in dualistic Gemini, sign of young folk, represents upstarts, radical reformers, and "troublemakers" which may closely involve mercurial bloggers, reporters, pundits, and speechwriters (Gem.)
Of course, when Uranus is in the mix, the unpredictable is really the only thing predictable, isn't it?
And yet we know that times are ripe for some amount of Uranian chaos to manifest in the land; plus, the Uranus/Pluto square which began to move into orb this summer marks the 'crisis in consciousness' phase of the Uranus/Pluto cycle which began at their Great Conjunction/s of the mid-60s in mid-Virgo, also a time of social upheavals.
Are Internet Freedoms and Net Neutrality on the Chopping Block in 2011?
Uranian issues of freedom and independence are on the menu in ways we cannot yet imagine which reminds me of a news tidbit I published yesterday on my WordPress blog concerning the sighting of a UN military convoy in Pennsylvania yesterday.
That's a UN convoy. Military. On the soil of PA. Going somewhere.
Is anyone disturbed by this?
Then if Elena Kagan sits on the Supreme Court bench, President Obama will have an ally in the censorship of the internet, magazines, news reports, pamphlets, and possibly books since Kagan as Solicitor General has argued in front of SCOTUS for just such censorship in the US of A.
